The hospital is great. Mostly volunteers. No fees. Just a bunch of caring people healing sick Koalas for their eventual re-release back to the wild. Very educational. FREE! Donations go to keep it going. You wont touch a Koala but you will be helping to save them. Better than a zoo. Next door there is a very old victorian house.... More

These Koalas were looked after with tenderness, treating their many ailments and problems before some not all of them were returned to the wild. Nothing to dislike.

We visited and saw the recuperating koalas and the fibreglass koalas, Sunshine and Bushby. They are doing a fantastic job at this hospital.

I love this place and always recommended it to young families on a tight budget when I worked at the Glasshouse as a Tourism Ambassador. Tucked away off Lord Street you are given a guided tour and talk by experienced staff member to view koala's rescued or orphaned before they are rehabilitated back into the wild...be prepared to look up...

Staffed by volunteers and funded by donations they have a wonderful facility informative talks explaining the work done there was enlightening Not a tourist destination like others where it's all about photos and cuddling bears but the rehabilitation and release back to wild.
